When it comes to the company you poured so much time and effort into, it’s natural to want only the best and brightest franchisees to come onboard. However, finding quality buyers is often easier said than done, especially when you factor in all the other tasks and responsibilities that you face as a business owner every day.
There are numerous challenges that can impede a franchise sale, which is why it helps to have a trusted partner in your corner. Pinnacle Franchise Development provides essential assistance to businesses when it comes to the sales process. We also offer helpful tips and guidance to help businesses clear the hurdles standing in their way.
Here are a few of the challenges we can help you overcome.
Securing Quality Candidates
A franchise is only as good as the franchisees, which is why candidate selection is so important. In addition to financial considerations and candidate experience, you want to ensure that the buyer you choose embodies a sincere representation of your business and values. A good vetting process helps you determine which candidates are worthy of further investigation, as opposed to sitting down with every person that expresses interest in the sale.
Performing Due Diligence
Of course, candidate selection is just the beginning. From there, you must perform extensive due diligence to ensure the candidate has what it takes to successfully run the franchise. Proper vetting can be extremely time-consuming when performed correctly, and not all business owners will have the time and patience to devote to the process. A lack of time can result in cut corners and oversights, which may come back to haunt you in the form of costly delays and missed opportunities.
Overseeing Technical Details
The work continues even after you’ve chosen the best candidate. Next, you must navigate through all the technical details involved in onboarding the potential buyer. While not necessarily complicated, there is much room for error when it comes to filling out documents and filing items in a timely manner. Among the many other franchising services we provide, we can also handle all the technical aspects of the transaction. For instance, our team can cover application processes, create marketing materials, and resolve other practical matters crucial to a timely sale.
